This looks like it will solve the problem;



Transducer Bracket - With 5 | Fishing Tackle | The Tackle Shop


Just angle it into the water over the trim tab.

How about fixing one of these railblaza straps to the tube behind the transom RECEIVER FOR FLOAT TUBE PIKE N' BASS
then using other railblaza attachments fix the transom to that.
Scotty do a similar item as well that may be more secure as you can use a locking base BASE DE FIXATION A SANGLE SCOTTY POUR FLOAT TUBE
I've bought quite a bit of gear from Pecheur and always had prompt no hassle delivery.

I have my transducer mounted to tube with the suction mount.
So far I have not had any trouble with it.

Hi Jellyworm, I am not too far away from you, just the other side of the Humber bridge. I had the 3.8 but sold it as it was too heavy for me on my own but did look into the transducer mount.
I think the arm needs to be as short as possible to reduce vibration or to use a heavier gauge of material to aid this issue. The wooden bracket idea is a good base to build on although I would be tempted to use a length of aluminium angle mounted on the transom with a heavy weight nylon cutting board, 12mm thickness shaped out to offer strength but at the same time very little resistance in the water.
Hmmm, not so easy to explain this and no photo to add. Imagine something like a rudder with the transducer fastened to the bottom of the blade.
Hope that helps, not so sure it does.

Phil

I keep seeing this thread title in my Recent Discussions, where it does not get as far as 'transducer', and then I wonder, what sort of pervert......
